I usually don’t last on these types of games… My first mountain home – Bjornheim, let me know what you think (no console cheats) including LOTR style beacon from valheim

This is the first build on our list, a huge mountain home with a spacious mead hall for all the Vikings to sit relax and enjoy their long day of adventuring, it has everything you need, workbenches, cooking stations, smelters, portals, you name it.

A complete base decorated with trophies and other gear adorning the whole interior as well as a beautiful flooring design.

My strangely comfortable crafting/stargazing area. Not the biggest build, but one with lots of attention to detail. Feedback appreciated! from valheim

Another beautiful build that goes underground with an open roof for stargazing, spiraling beams coming down from the roof and pretty green lightning are giving this one a mysterious vibe, as any underground crafting hideout should be.

3. Village Castle Build

Functional Village/Castle Solo Build, 200 hours played, no cheats. Let me know what you think, thanks! from valheim

It seems like building villages in Valheim is an inherent instinct that comes into any player’s mind when playing this game so here is one of the first village builds that has everything you need to craft.

4. Gladiator Stadium

Built a Stadium inspired by Gladiator movie (night view) from valheim

You can’t have a list without a colosseum and even though this isn’t actually from the Viking culture, the freedom of expression every player has is their own, so with that being said, this build is absolutely amazing and deserves a spot on this list.

5. Swamp Forest Base

Here’s my wife giving a high-speed tour of our Between-Swamp-and-Forest base. from valheim

Another big base with a very creative idea of using pointy beams to create a really unique design, building between biomes is also really handy when it comes to Valheim because each one has its own resources, plus the video is very well made.

6. Mountain Base

REPOST-Mountain Base, Organized and Functional: A more in depth look at a few things I’ve done with my mountain base. My last video was a quick run through, this one is slowed down a bit so you can see the smaller details. Hopefully this sparks an idea or two for your next build! Happy Valheiming 🙂 from valheim

A big base atop of a mountain with numerous rooms that are functional and have everything you need to craft, it seems like there was a lot of stone used in this one and the design turned out pretty good so it definitely deserves a spot on this list.

7. Iron Age Abode

My modest (solo) iron age abode! Might not be as grand as some of the stuff here, but I’m very proud! from valheim

A really beautiful place with a trench surrounding it and a dragon head bridge with iron gates connecting it to the rest of the world.

A cozy place to be with friends and a big hall to enjoy drinking mead and telling stories.

8. Honeycomb Blossom

I was tired of hopping next to my hives to collect honey, so I made a giant honeycomb blossom! All of the bees are happy and collection is a breeze. from valheim

This one is not only beautiful but also a good idea of a functioning way to gather all of the honey at once, looks good, works good, and if it inspires you then you should build one as well.

9. Village & Snow Lodge

One Year in Valheim – Our village and snow lodge walkthrough from valheim

Another beautiful build on the top of a mountain, looks like those places really inspire players to build on those locations but who can blame them, they look absolutely fantastic.

And not only that but this video provides a two in one village and snow lodge connected with a portal so two extra points for this one.

10. Fortress of Helvegr

Fortress of Helvegr – Survival (WIP) from valheim

This build has to be one of the best ones we’ve seen so far, Drauglord decided that Bonemass’s skull was a little bit lonely by itself so he started building around it and embedded it into his fortress which looks amazing.

With the green torch addition and the way he designed this build, you can’t tell that the skull is something foreign anymore, it suits this place so well, kudos to him and whoever helped him do it.

11. Minas Tirith

Minas Tirith, Valheim.

Minas Tirith, Valheim.

There can be no list without having a Lord of the Rings inspired one so here it is, Minas Tirith Valheim edition.

This one looks a lot like the one from the trilogy and the video tour shows us all the little details that have been added in.

12. Connected Islands Base

Connected Islands Base, Valheim.

Creator: CrystalClear
Youtube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOzHQkrtnFc

This one is a special build that is made with small islands being connected to create a big beautiful village with everything you will ever need, there has been so much work put into it that it could probably house more than 10 players.

Hell, this one looks like some place that came out straight from an MMORPG.

13. Mountain Top Dragon Head Outpost

Mountain Top Dragon Head Outpost, Valheim.

Mountain Top Dragon Head Outpost, Valheim.

Creator: CrazySteve

Another mountaintop base but this one has a really unique design, it looks like a freaking dragon and is functional as well just look at it, look how amazing it is, well done CrazySteve you deserve more recognition for this one and that’s why it’s on this list.

14. Hamville

18. Forest Village

Creator: Rezonans Pustoty
Youtube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk4jgBb4MbM

Another insane village build that just had to be in this list, this one also looks like it’s coming from an RPG game.

At first glance, if you were to look at it, it would throw you away because you might not notice it’s a build from Valheim.

19. Skyrim Honninbrew Meadery

That’s it for our list with the best builds we found on Reddit and Youtube, we hope you enjoyed it and give to every creator you like a sub or a follow they truly deserve it.


Been a gamer since birth. I don't have a certain taste in genres, so I try every type of video game I stumble across, from racing games, to RPGs, to shooters - anything that clicks in me I play it, and if i become obsessed with it, I'll also write about it .
